Tola, Rivas, Nicaragua

  • Approx. travel time from airport: 2.5 hours
  • Estimated # of children available from this center: 165
  • Estimated total # of children available from this region: 300

These children live in the Virgen Morena neighborhood, home to about 3,200 people, in the municipality of Tola. Spanish is the common language. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, wood walls, and metal roofs. The regional diet consists of bananas, beans, beef, chicken, eggs, bread, and cassava.

Most adults in Virgen Morena make a living by farming, raising livestock, doing day labor, performing domestic services, working in a factory or selling goods on the street. The average family income is equivalent to $56 per month. This community needs access to specialized health care, more jobs, and frequent reconstruction after winter flooding.

Sponsorship allows the staff of Fuente de Santidad Center for Integral Development to provide your sponsored child with Bible teaching, health screenings, health kits, hygiene, and basic life-skill training, school supplies, uniforms, tutoring, career guidance, computer classes, creative activities, soccer tournaments, and community service opportunities. The staff will also provide lessons on child protection and celebrations for the parents or guardians of sponsored children.

This community has electricity, water, and drainage but needs vocational education, clothing, and more housing.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Dios Proveerá Student Center to provide your sponsored child with Bible teaching, birthday celebrations, sports, cultural activities, and tutoring. The center staff will also provide educational conferences for the parents or guardians of your sponsored child.

Compassion Experience

join us and go on an interactive tour of life in the developing world

WHAT IS COMPASSION EXPERIENCE?

The Compassion Experience is a free interactive event that journeys through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda, and the Dominican Republic.

In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets, and schools — without getting on a plane. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope.

RockPointe Church will be hosting the Compassion Experience this summer. We invite you and your family to participate in this life-changing event. Each journey lasts approximately 20 minutes.

This event is open to the community.
